In The Dark Of The Night

When Anastacia moves to the city of London to rid herself of adult responsibilities and experience the nightlife, she meets Louis, a dark handsome man that owns the night club down the road. But when she's eerily drawn to him and starts to lose valuable memories she questions who he really is...

Although the night was cool and windy, Anastacia still found it hard to get comfortable in her bed.  She sat up and grabbed her shawl from her closet and walked to the balcony, small Christmas lights decorating the railings and illuminating it slightly.  "Where the fuck have you been?" slurred a voice from behind her.  Anastacia turned to find her father, his bow tie askew and his shirt and jacket, untucked.  "I left...then I came to visit mom and the kids, but it looks like you scarred them away too," she snapped, wrapping her shawl around herself tightly.  "Don't throw me an attitude missy. I know you've been stealing money from me..." he slurred again, taking another sip out of the wine bottle that he held in his hand.  "Well at least I've been using it wisely, rather than spending it on booze," she scoffed, "Go to bed, you drunk bastard." Suddenly her father lunged forward, dropping his wine bottle on the floor and wrapping his fingers around her small neck tightly, and squeezing.  "YOU STUPID BITCH! WHO GIVES YOU THE RIGHT TO COME BACK HERE AND INSULT ME! I'M YOUR FATHER! HOW DARE YOU!" he screamed, thrashing her around the room, his fingers still tightly around her neck.  "William! William! Let her go! It was my fault! Let her go!" Marilyn yelled, running into her bedroom, trying her hardest to pull her husband off of Anastacia.  "STUPID BITCH!" William screamed, kicking Marilyn to the floor before returning his attention back to Anastacia, who was already growing weak.  He slapped her hard, pushing her against the wall roughly before backhanding her once more.  "Get away from her!" yelled Louis form the doorway before he appeared behind William.  His eyes grew dark as his sharp fangs dug into Williams neck, grabbing his throat tightly as he thrashed around, the sound of flesh tearing.  Marilyn screamed, backing up against the wall as she watched her husband's life drain from his body.  Louis pulled away, his mouth dripping with blood as he snapped his neck for good measure, letting his lifeless body fall to the floor.  Ana stood there in shock, rubbing her neck and regaining her breath, "Louis...Louis you killed him..." she stuttered. 

Louis' eyes returned to normal, and suddenly a look of sadness washed over him, "Oh my god Ana...Ana. I'm so sorry...I..don't know what came over me.  I saw him...and I snapped.  Oh god," he groaned, falling to the floor and wrapping his arms around his knees.  Anastacia fell next to him, wrapping her arms around his neck, sobbing, "It's done....It's over," she thought to herself.  Marilyn walked feebly over to Louis, a small knife in her hand as she edged closer, "Get out of my house..." she spoke, looking to the both of them, "Never come back her again..."  Ana stood up, "Mom...please listen to me," she tried to assure, moving closer to her mother. Marilyn slashed her knife, "Don't come any closer!" she screamed, backing away from her daughter, "I'll clean this but for right now Ana...You need to leave..and don't come back," she cried.  Ana backed away, shocked as she took Louis' hand and grabbed her suitcase, that was still already packed from earlier today.  "Let's go Lou," whispered Ana as she walked down the stairs and out the door, running to the driveway and taking her mother's car, driving away.
